Though we have a best-selling tape on this important subject, there are some further revelations that must be put forth. There is confusion about fantasy and masturbation because of ignorance on the part of teachers who teach this practice can be done by Christians to relieve stress or on the mutual consent of a married couple. We have found much to the contrary in the Scriptures. Let us look first at what fantasy/ masturbation is.
In the great eighth chapter of Romans, which is the solution to St. Paul's wrestling with his sin in chapter seven, we see a profound truth. It is that those who live according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires, set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh. But those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit, set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the Holy Spirit. So the life of the Spirit requires a mind change.
